This extension allows you to quick-view a new tab by holding down Option + Command while clicking a link.
With the Intab extension installed, invoke a Quick View tab by holding down Option (alt) and Command while clicking a link. Instead of a new browser tab opening, the link will be opened inline.
Tabs are great. I mean, remember life before tabs? How did we survive? But tabs have their shortcomings. Browsing to a new tab breaks the flow of reading. Say your reading something that refers to another article. To read that article, you'd typically have to open in a new tab, read it, then close it. Intab allows you to view those two articles side by side, maintaining context.
Intab is a bit buggy and serves mainly as an interaction experiment to see if the concept of tabs can be improved upon. If you like it or would like to see any improvements, please shoot me an email: iansilber @ gmail dot you-know-the-rest.
Currently only tested on Chrome Version 25.0.1364.172 for Mac.
